6:00pm
johnny. he has 193 yards. i still think the ball is better off not being in the bunker. it's not. >> i would rather be right there than the sand. you don't have to worry about the contact as much. get it started outside on the right and let the wind push it back. >> he needs a birdie here to be a factor to tie casey at 8 under. guys playing with dustin johnson has it in his hands at 9 under. >> it's not an easy shot with the loop in swing of his with the ball below his feet. play it way back the his stance. trap draw it maybe. >> wow. >> kind of came out flying. >> johnson with the gallery behind the green. >> don't blink now.
6:01pm
>> 184. nice lie. >> what is this a little 8 iron? >> it's not a big one, i don't think. >> turn it with the wind. >> it's right in the hole. actually turning back toward it now. >> that might go down the hill. nope. a par wins it. >> well played. great drive and a well played second. after coming off a perfectly played 17th hole for birdi that's a nice walk up for him. >> a very interesting year in the world of golf. he has been through more than dustin johnson. he has almost been talked about more than the guys that have won the major championships that he had an excellent chance to win. pebble beach, he had a three-shot lead and forget that martin kymer won there because
6:02pm
dustin johnson swirled in so much controversy over the bunker he didn't think was a bunker, so many people around the shot, and that's something he's had to live with, but here he is in the next big championship, the final round sunday heat better than anybody else. >> we talked about the bunker but it was a shot that went in the bunker is the one that last it for him. >> this would be his fourth pga tour title at the age of 26. you've heard all the guys from tiger to mickelson and all the really good players of the day talk about how talented this 26-year-old golfer is. four titles would be the most by any player currently under 30 years old. dustin johnson is proving that he's the best player around in his 20s. >> his potential is almost unlimited. the fact that he has a good cutting stroke, he has to work on that shot from 50 to 100 yards and the bunker play. besides that i like everything
6:03pm
about him. >> struggled last week, finishing in a tie for 57th at the deutsch bank championship. everything kind of clicked here this week. >> exciting player to watch because he's sort of like phil, he will hit that driver, he goes for shots. he always, always hitting at the flag. >> what about pairing phil and dustin at the ryder cup. >> you know, you would want him every time. he would be the perfect partner. i don't know about the alternate shot one. he does drive it well. >> when they posted matt kuchar's score, it jumped k.j. choi up into the 25th spot. it took haas out of the top 30 into 31. fowler is down another notch. van pelt is now back in. >> yeah. it's very interesting. too bad about rickie fowler. playing in the ryder cup.
6:04pm
he's a fun guy to watch. you late to have him out of the field along with tiger woods out of the field. >> casey needs a three-putt here from dustin johnson. >> doing a lot of chatting there. >> i would think this is a pretty important spot for ryan moore right now too. >> yeah. >> he has got a very hard shot here. i mean this ball is a good 20 feet past the green, downhill lie. >> a bogey or better, ryan moore stays in the top 30 because of what kufrper has done. >> i hope he's not trying to land it where he's talking about. >> you know he does have the water behind the hole too. >> this is a tough shot. >> if he knew exactly where he stood i think i would play it out to the left. >> i think his caddie just mentioned that. >> well, we -- he has a history, as roger said, of these guys asking what they need. >> he said, if you can get under it, fine take the line at the
6:05pm
hole. if not let's play it out to the left. >> either that or try to land it kind of right there. little left. >> got some grass under. >> a little bit of grass. >> i honestly think it could kick so hard it bounces over the green. >> straight little line. >> yep. >> right there, mark? >> i am, johnny. he tries to land it short of the green it's a pretty severe downslope it might ricochet more than if it landed on the green. >> he's looking left. >> i think he has to go that way.
6:06pm
>> pretty good line. it will come back to the right a little long. that better stop though. >> i think it's all right. >> third shot. get it down in two from there and it would be okay. >> he was dead. you were right, mark. >> i'll tell you, dustin johnson has no bar grin from up here. you would think he's going to two-putt. most of the time he's an excellent long putter. it is not easiest of putts. his ball is sitting back in the shad shadow, putting into the sun light. >> the good news, we haven't seen one player today have trouble with this putt. every player has two-putted it. just not quite as quick as you would think it is. >> well, if kuchar didn't miss that one, sorry.
6:07pm
>> kuchar did three-putt. there's paul casey, hoping that how he's got a new life to win this championship and get into a playoff. >> i hope he doesn't hit it where kuchar did, because kuchar hit a heck of a second putt and it dove on him. want to cozy it down there and let gravity be your friend. it kicks left a little bit in the middle of the putt. >> yes. >> how about just about perfect. >> now that's the way to finish off a championship. three-four finish, that will do it under pressure. >> how big was that birdie at 17. obviously the par here is huge. >> there's two drives on 17 and 18, very aggressive and he just
6:08pm
earned them this championship. >> highest winning score in 19 years at coghill, the 9 under that billy mayfair put up back in 1995 and that's exactly where dustin johnson should finish. >> that had to be a hard decision for ryan moore to hit away from the flag, knowing that he had a little outside chance of getting into a playoff if he makes it, you know. >> just two putts from here and ryan moore will get in the top 30. >> how fast can you say georgia? >> obviously disappointed he didn't hang on to his lead to win for the second time out here on the pga tour, but ryan moore, with a very respectable final round sundayp. he got into trouble at the 11th
6:09pm
when his tee shot went out of bounds but he was 5 back at the time and battled his way back to have a chance. >> there it is for the win. >> justin johnson is the latest winner in the playoffs for the talented 26-year-old. >> very nice. >> very popular too. people love to watch him play golf. he just rips it. >> no meltdown, no controversy today for dustin johnson. he puts it away down the stretch and he was the only player on the leaderboard without a bogey on the back nine. so johnson, a one shot winner over paul casey. matt kuchar will lead the way into atlanta with another impressive performance at 6 under, tied with choi. ryan moore and kevin na. we take a look at the up-to-date standings. matt kuchar remains on top at number one. those are the top five. if any of those players, kufrper, johnson, hoffman,
